“Fantastic characters, scorching sexual tension, and non-stop action make this one of my favorite reads this year!”—New York Times bestselling author Laura Kaye
RITA nominee Scarlett Cole’s Under Fire pairs a hot Navy SEAL with a medical researcher who finds herself in too deep.
Hot, hard-bodied Sixton Rapp is a former SEAL who’s raring to begin his brand-new civilian life. He and his Navy “brothers” start a security firm that offers the kind of services only a team of military-trained professionals can provide. But nothing prepared Six for his new client: an innocent woman on a mission to improve thousands of lives. . . unless someone takes hers first.
Dr. Louisa North knows time is against her as she tries to create a “miracle” medical treatment for a disease with no known cure, until she creates a sample so powerful that the wrong people want to use it as a chemical weapon. At first, Six is unwilling to accept Louisa as his client. But soon he realizes that the danger is real and that there’s much more to this plain-Jane scientist…including a burning passion between them that neither of them can resist. And now that an enemy is on Louisa’s trail, Six will do whatever it takes to protect her—or die trying.
"Cole is a genius at weaving together heart-racing, suspenseful moments with scorching intimacy and real characters." - USA Today
fun, fast moving and an entertaining
UNDER FIRE was an entertaining, under the gun courtship that turns into so much more.
I enjoyed Six's and Lou's story and see that this series really has the potential to go places.
I wasn't a fan of Six's vacillation between work ethics and being in a relationship with Lou, especially since the work ethics where already blown to hell.
In the end, I found it to be a fun, fast moving and an entertaining romance with a cast of characters that I look forward to their stories.
I received this ARC copy of Under Fire from St. Martin's Press. This is my honest and voluntary review.
Enjoyable start to new series!
What a great start to a new series! It was a great blend of suspense and romance, where neither one overshadowed the other.
I'm such a fan of the nerd/hottie pairing. It shows that it isn't all about looks, but a true connection a couple feels for each other. Scarlett Cole did a wonderful job of taking a playboy like Six and turning him into a complete gentlemen where Louisa was concerned. He read her social cues with accuracy and not only accommodated her but also bolstered her.
The plot was believable and put an exciting twist to the story. It also kept Six's buddies and co-owners to the new security business in direct involvement so we could learn more about the future H's in this series.
I recommend this to all romantic suspense lovers and I'm looking forward to the next one in the series. ARC provided by NetGalley.
What a fantastic way to kick off a new series! I adored this book and it gives us a different side to Scarlett Cole's writing. I must say she nailed it! The perfect blend of romance and suspense to keep me turning page after page.
Sixten "Six" Rapp is a former Navy SEAL starting up a security firm with his buddies. His first assignment is protecting Dr. Louisa North. A scientist researching a treatment for a previously incurable disease. She develops an chemical agent that is so powerful the wrong people want to get their hands on it for all the wrong reasons. Six is skeptical at first but quickly sees that the threat against Louisa is real. And the more he gets to know how the more he wants to make sure she stays safe.
A great fast paced story that you won't want to put down. This is one for the must read list. I highly recommend it.
